sounds like @tifosi just started a GMTO...

Cool, man your killing it with your boot purchases lately.
What was the quote? It's a stock style, right?
Who would have multiple shell boots?
That should be really nice!
Probably old news here, but a quick cell phone pic of the new EG last from the Robert Jones EG trunk show today:
It was right around $950. Not quite the same money as the EG but close enough for me to think about it.
Definitely within that range.
Thanks for sharing Roger.

Yep - a bit more angular than the 888.
On its own the 890 looks basically indistinguishable from the 89 last. I'd be interested in a side by side comparison between the 890, 89, 888 and perhaps an 808 for good measure. Cheers.
A bit sleeker and (I know I'll get killed for this...) without that slight "blobbyness" of 888.
Actually reminds me of the Vass U. I don't think the 89 is as chiseled as the 890 as the slope is softer with the former:
